HVOF – High-Velocity Oxygen Fuel

High-velocity oxygen fuel (HVOF) is a process in which fuel and oxygen are combusted simultaneously. The fuels involved can include kerosene, hydrogen, propane, methane, natural gas, and more. The spray stream then coats a surface resulting in low porosity and high bond strength.

  • HVOF Equipment Arzell, Inc. has integrated

JP, JP-5, JP-8, JP5000, JP5120, JP8000, JP8200, DiamondJet, JetKote II, JetKote III, WokaJet, WokaStar, DJ2600, DJ2700, eGun, Nova-A, NOVA-D, MP-50, HV-50, DJC, DJCE, DJFW

HVAF – High-Velocity Air Fuel

High-velocity air fuel (HVAF) is a cooler process than HVOF, allowing it to be used on a wider range of materials. The lower oxygen involved in the combustion creates coatings with higher levels of flexibility while still maintaining high hardness levels.

  • HVAF Equipment Arzell, Inc. has integrated

M2, M3, C6, AK7, AK6, AK5

Plasma and Vacuum Plasma

Plasma spraying involves the use of a highly controlled plasma jet to melt and accelerate material particles. With a wide range of settings, ratios, and fuels available, plasma coatings allow for precise results to be achieved. Coatings that can be applied by plasma spraying include pure metals, alloys, carbides, and ceramics.

  • Plasma Equipment Arzell, Inc. has integrated

3710, 6600XL, 7700AP, 7M, 9M, MultiCoat, UniCoat, AT-3000, AP-50, External injection, internal injection, SG-100, 2086A, 3M, 3MB, 9M, F1, F4, F4XL, Sinplex, Triplex, Axial III+

Arc Spray – Twin Wire Arc Spray

The arc spray process involves energizing two conductive wires to create molten materials. This material is directed through a nozzle to direct and propel the desired material. This process provides a powerful mechanical bond and is frequently used in many applications.

  • Arc Equipment Arzell, Inc. has integrated

AT-400, 8830, 8835, 9910, 9935, 9985, BP-400, AWS-400, Flexi Arc, SmartArc, ValuArc

Combustion Spray

The combustion spraying process involves gaseous fuel and oxygen to apply metallic and ceramic coatings. The combustion process is lower energy and can therefore be used on surfaces with lower melting points.

  • Combustion Equipment Arzell, Inc. has integrated

6P, 6P-II, 5P, 16e, J3, TD-3000

Laser Cladding

Laser cladding or laser metal deposition is a process in which a stream of metallic powder or wire is applied via a class 4 laser. The laser cladding process delivers a high-quality coating material and offers pinpoint precision.

Cold Spray

Cold spray is a deposition process in which powdered materials are applied at supersonic speeds. The particle velocity can be adjusted for intensity and trajectory.

Powder Feeder

Powder feeders are an essential tool for applying coats onto materials. Our powder feeders deliver highly controlled results and offer sophisticated settings.

  • Powder Feeder Equipment Arzell, Inc. has integrated

G4, V1, AT-1200, 1264, 1264i, 1264WL, Twin 10, 9MP, 9MPDJ, 5MPE, 5MP-HP, FST-10, FST-20
